Any church that bases hiring decisions on gender and chauvinistic readings of ancient texts is wildly out of step with basic principles of equality that must be upheld, said the ruling.
The ruling also questions “how any modern organisation can reasonably expect to get anything done while refusing to use some of its best human resources.”
The Supreme Court ruling stated that persistence in discrimination against female pastors will earn churches public reprimand and a scorching review in the next George Knight book.
You’ve had your fix of satire. Now head over to Adventist Today for current events updates, analysis and opinion on all things Adventist.
A CULTURAL MOVEMENT
1. Satans plan in the last days? Divide & Conquer
2. Basis of all our theology decisions…ON THE BIBLE AND THE PRINCIPLES ESTABLISHED THEREIN.
3. We must first start where the HEADSHIP debate first appeared? Satan in Heaven questioned Gods divine order.
THE FOLLOWING ARE ALL BIBLICAL PRECEDENTS AND OF GODS APPOINTED SPIRITUAL HEADSHIP…..
a. Adam was created first, was the caretaker of the garden, identified the animals, names his wife, and was the first to give an account of the sin committed first by Eve.
b. Jesus came as the second Adam to re-claim the SPIRITUAL HEADSHIP Adam had surrendered to Satan by disobedience .
c. Only men were called to the Priestly ministry and officiated in the sacrificial ceremonies.
d. The founders of the 12 tribes of Israel were all men.
e. All of Israel were called to be priests in terms of spreading the gospel however, only men were allowed to to offer the Passover Lamb and serve as Priests.
f. The 12 rulers appointed by Moses in the wilderness were all men directed by God.
g. The 70 elders appointed by Moses were all men.
h. Only men were anointed to serve as Kings.
I. All patriarchal blessings were passed down from Father to Son.
j. The lineage of Jesus is all traced through males.
k. The 7 examples of women giving birth in connection to a miracle, all gave birth to males.
l. JESUS ONLY CALLED MALES TO SERVE AS HIS APOSTLES.
m. Both men and women were baptized , but only by men.
n. The first 7 deacons called to serve to administer to the early Christian church were all men.
o. Paul in his travels from city to city only ordained men 1 Cor. 11: 3
ANY COMPROMISE OF BIBLICAL STANDARDS OF PRACTICE WILL ONLY LEAD TO THE FUTURE COMPROMISES LIKE…..THE SABBATH…..SAME SEX MARRIAGE…..EVOLUTION
Other Protestants have adapted women’s ordination and the results are loss of membership , huge divisions created, etc.
SATAN. WANTS TO CREATE DIVISION IN THE REMNANT CHURCH AND IS ACCOMPLISHING HIS GOALS WITH OUR ASSITANCE AND LACK OF FOLLOWING THE BIBLE AND ITS PRINCIPLES.
1. Yes, divide the women from the men, so the men can conquer them.
2.Act 1:13,14 And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the WOMEN, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” The women preached right along with the men. The priesthood of the believers has been a cardinal doctrine of protestants since the reformation.
3.In the old covenant only men could join the church, and most of them did at 8 days old. No bastard could join the church. All priests had to be church members, they also had to be sons of Aaron. In the new covenant women and men have to repent in order to be baptized and choose to join the church. Men and women are on an equal level.
Rom 16:1,2 I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a deacon [Not deaconess] of the church which is at Cenchrea: That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a WOMAN RULER of many, and of MYSELF also.
4. The women at the tomb after the resurrection were given a personal command to meet Jesus in Galilee. There were over 500 men and women at the meeting. Jesus told them all. Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, BAPTIZING them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Clay-spot on brother. Only we now live in the 21st century. The times they are a changing. We just have to go with the flow , you know what I mean?
I suggest we let the local churches do the hiring of pastors. Use the local tithe to pay them. The WO thing will shy away from the more conservative congregations. MAGA-Make Adventism Great Again before 2021 GC.
The tithe should go to those who labor in word and doctrine, be they men or women.– 1MR 263
